Transmutation of the Elements of Matter, part 2: Under Pressure

The elements of matter are but varying aggregations of corpuscular light units gathered together in systems familiarly known as atoms.” —Walter Russell

* * *

THERE ARE NOT NUMEROUS ELEMENTS. According to Dr. Walter Russell, from Nature’s point of view, there is only one substance, Carbon, undergoing changes under changing pressure and transmuting through ten octaves of seven tones each, every element a precursor of the next. “A radium particle was once a light unit of hydrogen and will be so again. More than this, an atom of any element actually contains within itself all of the other elements.” More about this is my next post.

In the vibrational context of Creation, that One Substance is called Light. In a spiritual context, that substance is called Love. Out of the Light of Love all substance is created . . . and transmuted by Love..

All substance in the Creating Universe is under pressure to change, to transmute to a higher vibration . . . including the substance that comprises our physical bodies — and they do transmute at death, at least some of it, leaving the greater portion of mineral ash to fall back down into the earth from which it transmuted to a level just above the mineral kingdom to the animal kingdom.

These are the “kingdoms of this world” that are to become the “Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ.” This restoration awaits the restoration and ascension of Man to his ordained place as keeper of the Garden of Eden on Earth. What needs to be restored, and transmuted, is the substance of human consciousness. Much more of the substance of our physical bodies, and of the entire planet Earth, can and needs to be transmuted than is now occurring. That transmutation will follow in the wake of the restoration of Man. My rationale in writing this blog is that human consciousness might be elevated to a level where understanding of the Whole Holy World is advanced by at least some degree. These are my thoughts as I enter the Golden Years of my life cycle.

In this series I will consider the process by which the elements of matter transmute under pressure to higher and higher levels in the ten octaves of elemental progression to higher tones. I will call on Dr. Walter Russell to guide us through this consideration. The excerpts I will be using are from his 1955 published work A NEW CONCEPT of the UNIVERSE and his 1926 signature work THE UNIVERSAL ONE. I will start at the beginning with Dr. Russell’s stated Life Principle.

* * *



    All life is immortal life. There is no mortal life. Life is a vitalizing property of all matter.   

Life is in and of all matter.

Man’s concept of life is not logical.

Man conceives life to be a property apart from matter, quickening compound elements of inorganic matter into living, functioning, organic beings.

Man defines organic matter as that in which life begins to function, imbuing it with vitality and intelligence. Man defines inorganic matter as those elements or compounds of matter in which there is no life and in which there is no vitality nor intelligence.

    Man conceives life as spontaneously generated in matter at favorable temperatures and under favorable conditions. Such concepts are not true concepts.

In searching for the life principle man is attempting to discover something corresponding to a germ which quickens lifeless matter. Life is not a germ and no matter is lifeless.

     Life is in and of all things from the beginning, always and forever.

     Life has no beginning. Life has no ending. Life is eternal.

     Life is in and of all inorganic as well as all organic matter.

Life is in and of all of the elements and the atoms of the elements and the compounds of the elements.

Life is in and of the sun of the atom, the planets of the atom, and the heavens surrounding the universe of the atom.

Life is the effect produced on the substance of Mind by the sequence of alternating electromagnetic pulsations which constitute the process of thinking. The progress of this effect is registered in integrating light and manifests itself in that orderly periodic phenomenon inherent in all matter and all things which man calls “growth.”

All matter is evolving.

All “growing” things are imbued with the life principle.

All things are “growing” things.

All matter is growing.

All matter is living.

Life is merely the registration, in matter, of states of motion of thinking Mind.

The substance of Mind has the appearance of many states of motion which man calls the “elements of matter.”

The “elements of matter” do not vary in substance. They vary only in their states of motion.

All motion is periodic and evolutionary.

All motion is motion in equilibrium. No other motion is possible.

All motion has the appearance of being divided into opposites. .

These opposites of motion shall henceforth be termed “motion-in-inertia” and ” motion-in-opposition. “

All that appearance which man calls matter is “motion-in-opposition.”

Motion-in-opposition is under either preponderantly electric or magnetic domination. It is a state of motion where pressures are un-equalized and sustained in their state of un-equalization by the resistance of the two opposing forces in motion. The point of maximum motion-in-opposition is the nuclear center of a unit or system where opposing pressures reach their point of maximum pressure.

Form of matter disappears into motion-in-inertia.

Motion-in-inertia is equally electric and magnetic. Neither force dominates. It is a state of motion where pressures are equalized. Man’s concept of life is energized, organic substance. Man’s concept of death is de-energized, organic substance.

There is no death. Life is eternal.

The One substance of the universe cannot become de-energized. Man’s concept of life belongs to motion-in-opposition.

Man’s concept of death belongs to motion-in-inertia.

Life belongs, in principle, to motion.

This is a universe of motion.

The cause of all motion is the dynamic action of thinking of the One universal living Being, which man calls God, or Mind, or by other names, all of which stand practically for the one idea of fatherhood, or deity.

Thinking is a process, an orderly, evolutionary, periodic process of absolute limitations.

All motion of thinking Mind is born in the maximum high speed of the universal constant of energy. It runs the gamut of periodic and opposing deceleration and acceleration in six full tones, one double tone, and a master-tone, to each of nine lowering octaves, and a variable number of mid-tones in each of the last four octaves.

The seven tones are those so-called “elements of matter” which are improperly classified in the eight groups of the commonly accepted Mendeleef periodic table. All effects of motion which cause the appearance of these elements is that which is herein termed “motion-in-opposition.”

The master-tone of each octave is the record of all motion taking place within the octave.

The master-tones are the turning points between reaction and action, just as the double tones are the turning points between action and reaction.

They are the beginnings of each new expression of energy in motion and are records of the old.

They are the ends of exhalations and the beginnings of inhalations.

The master-tone of each octave is the inheritance of the original motion of the thinking process of Mind. These master-tones are the “inert gases” which are classified in the zero group of the Mendeleef table.

The state of motion of these inert gases is that of motion-in-inertia.

Motion-in-inertia is that state of pressure equilibrium which lies between any two masses.

The inertial line, or plane, is that dividing line, or plane, toward which all masses discharge their potential.

It is the line, or plane, of lowest potential of two opposing areas of potential, where opposing pressures neutralize. This is the plane of minimum pressure of two opposing areas.

The master-tones which represent a state of motion-in-inertia and are the inert gases, bear the same relationship to the elements that white bears to the colors. They are a registration of them all. White is not included in the spectrum, it has no place there. The inert gases should not be included in the elements. They have no place there. Of this more shall be written later in its proper place.

The ten octaves constitute a cycle of evolving states of motion. This cycle includes the uttermost limitations of divine possibilities, and beyond it nothing is or can be.

The cycle begins with the highest note and descends the scale sequentially through man’s unseen universe until hydrogen, the first element perceivable to man, is reached.

There is no unseen universe.

Those tones which follow hydrogen are man’s visible or “physical” universe of matter and continue into the tenth octave. Here elemental integration and disintegration have ended the cycle by the attainment of the equilibrium of its beginning.

All motion is oscillatory, swinging in sequence between two apparently opposing forces, gravitation and repulsion, which are respectively electric and magnetic.

This oscillatory motion is a pulsating in-breathing and out-breathing, an inhalation and an exhalation, which is a characteristic of all matter, whether it be in units, or systems of units, or mass.

These two apparently opposite forces are the father … mother forces of Mind, which, added together, make but the One force.

There is but one pendulum to the cosmic clock.

All the so-called “created” universe of matter is but the effect of these two apparently opposing male, female forces exerting their opposition.

All motion-in-opposition is both gravitative and repulsive. This is characteristic of all matter.

Motion, at the inertial line or plane where mass disappears, is neither gravitative nor repelative. Hence the master-tones, which register effects of motion on this line or plane, should not be included in the table of the elements.

All matter is characterized by periodic and alternating opposites of motion in sequence, each opposite being preponderant in sequence.

Each opposite force is the cause of the other.

Opposition is a characteristic appearance of all effects of motion and has no existence other than as an appearance. In inertia, this appearance always disappears.

Motion and matter must not be confounded. Matter, as man understands matter, is only an appearance due to states of motion.

The creation of form in matter is the apparent integration of those things which are and always have been.

The de-creation of form in matter is the apparent disintegration of apparently integrated things.

Creation is transmutation, or integration, of the one simple indivisible substance, into the appearance of many complex substances and things.

Creation may be likened unto the assembling of a few letters of type for the printing of a very complex idea.

De-creation may be likened unto the redistribution of type, after it has served its purpose of giving expression to idea on the printed page.

Matter is light crystallized into the complex idea of this universe, exactly as literature is type assembled into the complex ideas of a library.

Matter is the registration medium of light, just as letters are the registration medium of literature.

Matter is light gravitationally assembled into the appearance of form, and radially disassembled into the disappearance of form.

The assembling process is what man calls life.

The disassembling process is what man calls death.           –

Light exists as light always and forever. 

All matter is but a variation of the state of light due to variation of dimension of the evidence of motion in the wave by which all motion is expressed.

To man, matter means the complexity of many substances and many things.

Complexity and variability belong to motion and not to substance. There is but One unchanging substance.

The appearance of change does not belong to substance but to motion.

Man lives in a universe of motion, a universe of appearances and illusions which deceive him, except for those simple, obvious illusions with which he becomes perfectly familiar.

Man will stoutly aver that matter changes and that there are many substances, but he would not dream of contending that the moon runs along the road behind the trees as he runs.

Yet one contention would be as reasonable as the other.

Matter and Mind and light and energy are eternal. They are constant. They are cause.

Form and motion are illusions. They are fleeting. They are effects.

This post is quite full, so I will allow space to give it deep thought over the next two weeks. I welcome any thoughts and insights you may wish to share. Until my next post, I wish for you a very Happy Thanksgiving Day. My heartfelt thanks to you for your presence with me in this venture into new insights into the amazing Universe in which we live out our many incarnations.

Thank you!


Transmutation of the Elements of Matter, part 1

God is the Light of Mind. God’s thinking Mind is all there is. Mind is universal. Mind of God and Mind of man are ONE. —Walter Russell

* * *

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS—or so it seems. The world of form around us is said to be an illusion and that which appears solid is in a state of flux and constant motion. The very elements that comprise the material world from which our bodies arise are constantly undergoing transmutation. I had a visual experience of the liquid nature of the world many years ago as I was in a deep meditative trance during an attunement session. I went into an altered state of consciousness. When I opened my eyes and looked around the room, the carpet in the room appeared to be alive and crawling with ants, as were the walls and furniture. This alteration of consciousness lasted for only a few moments as I came out of my trance. Nothing is as it seems.


We do perceive our world to be solid and hard as we bump up against things. I’ve come to understand this to be nothing more than our body’s electrical charge being repelled by the negative electrical charge of the electrons spinning around inside the atoms that make up the molecular structure of the material world—or so the current scenario of the structure of the atom goes, a scenario that’s being challenged by scientists, including Dr. Walter Russell, whose revolutionary concepts of the the universe of matter have piqued the interests of leading-edge scientists and some of those thinkers involved in the science and consciousness movement. His published work has seamlessly interwoven science and spirituality. 

By negative I do not mean pessimistic or destructive. I’m referring to electrical positive charge and negative discharge, noting that this is a discharge of electrical current and not the neutral grounding principle of the electrical circuitry in the wiring of your house where a “hot wire” carrying a positive current of electricity discharges its power via a neutral “grounding” wire that, with the flip of a switch, lights up the room or powers a motor. That’s not an example of positive and negative electricity. That’s an example of a positive charge discharging its power into the neutral and receptive ground, as in the case of lightning and thunder bolts.

This is dramatically demonstrated—sometimes painfully and fatally so—when someone who is grounded grabs a “hot” wire with the palm of his hand, the positive side of the hand. The hand tightens around the wire and it is nearly impossible to pull it away. If, however, one brushes up against the hot wire with the back side of one’s hand, the negative side, the hand is repelled. The positive electrical charge is a magnet to the positive side of the hand and repels the negative side.


According to Russell’s inspired vision of this electric universe, a negative charge repels both negative and positive charges, simply based on its unwinding centrifugal force of radiation outward from its vortex apex of positive magnetic centripetal contraction—the latter inhaling and compressing energy and the former exhaling and decompressing the energy of bifurcated Light. (See diagram above)

Undivided Light is the stable fulcrum of this energetic leveraging dynamic. It’s also the still and immovable point of control for this rhythmic heartbeat of the Cosmos. The Earth and all the planets are attracted to and repelled from the Sun simultaneously. Light is the still point of rest and origination for all of Creation.

The radiant magnetic presence of the sun is always available to the orbiting planets, whose lesser potentials attracts them to the greater potential of the sun even as their negatively charged bodies repel them from the sun, thereby keeping them in a creative proximity to the sun and to one another, and in a state of equilibrium. I suspect there’s a lot more science and physics at work involving the atmosphere, ionosphere and the Van Allan Radiation Belts of charged particles that shield the Earth from powerful solar winds.

In the Divine Design of Creation, the Light of Love shines radiantly into the darkness upon the face of the deep of space and shapes hallowed space . . . and continues to sanctify and reshape unhallowed space by means of Love’s purifying fire. Man’s role in this creative dynamic is to respond to the radiance of Love and to be drawn by its magnetic power to participate in Creation.

Let me share something with you that has enlightened my understanding of this illusory universe of matter—illusory only in that we cannot see the whole picture, which includes the invisible vibrational essences, with our physical and mental faculties. We can only discern them at the higher level of perception our hearts afford. Spiritual or vibrational things are spiritually or vibrationally discerned.

The mind’s netlike substance can only snare the larger thought patterns; the smaller essences slip right through its net. With the finer substance of our hearts we understand the fine essences of spirit. If we were to see the whole picture, we would see the continuum of differentiated energy and understand the vibratory nature of the material world. We would not then be fooled by the illusion of its seeming stability. Because it is in constant motion at the molecular level, it is quite susceptible to change—sudden change, as cataclysms, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes demonstrate. As part of a vibrational continuum of consciousness—the heaven and the earth being one inseparable whole—a change in the upper realms affects change in the lower realms.


Science and physics observe the Universe of matter using mental and physical modes of observation. They then draw conclusions based on what they observe in laboratories and develop theories about the construction of the physical world based on those very limited observations of appearances. After all, physics is a physical science, and scientific research is largely a mental exercise. What scientists and physicists cannot see and observe is the invisible vibrational reality behind the physical world of matter that gives it it’s properties and characteristics, along with its activities and movements—and how is all fits together into One Universal Whole.

That word alone (Uni-verse) means to turn as One around a stable fulcrum point of balancing Power which has position but no magnitude. Here in the Western hemisphere, we use the words God, the One and Creator or Great Spirit to speak of this unspeakable and ineffable nameless ONE. In Eastern religious sects, words such as Allah, Elohim, Yahwey, Purusha and a host of other names are used. Walter Russell uses the word “MIND” in his writings . . . and this brings me to something I wish to say about the human mind in the context of reading and studying the works of geniuses, such as Walter Russell was in his productive and creative life of service to the ONE.

The human mind is sometimes intimidated by complex intellectual considerations. Our minds are wonderful instruments for refocusing the Light of Truth that allows us to comprehend and navigate the many and various features and aspects of the physical material world of effects. Opened upwards, we are able to discern the invisible vibrational essences in the realm of Cause with the heart, for it is in our hearts, as we considered above, where spiritual and vibrational factors of Reality and Cause are understood. It has been demonstrated that there are a considerable number of “brain cells” in the physical heart. The popular saying “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he” speaks to this truth.


When I first opened Walter Russell’s book, THE UNIVERSAL ONE, several years ago, I was utterly at a loss mentally at comprehending what I was reading. I only started reading because of the headings of the chapters, which piqued my interest a great deal, for I have always been curious when it came to understanding what makes things what they are and by what force they are moved about. So I stayed with him “through thick and thin” as we say; through page after page and chapter after chapter. Suddenly, as if by some spontaneous shift in my faculty for understanding, I began reading his thought processes. I tapped into his mind, and I believe into the MIND of God, dare I say, whence Russell’s thoughts and words appeared to be arising and falling on the pages.

Once I began flowing with the current weaving through his uniquely poetic style of writing and expressing his understanding of the secrets of the Universe, I began to actually enjoy his writings. My next desire was to share some of his wisdom and insights with others through my blogs—which immediately presented a challenge. I suspect there are not very many of my followers who are interested in comprehending the secrets of the Universe, or the genius of Walter Russell . . . and I do appreciate that. Yet, I venture forward into the challenging endeavor of sharing what I find exciting and inspiring in this Universe of creating forces.

So I would encourage you to read the excerpts from Russell’s work more with your heart than with your mind in order to sense the current of his thinking. If you show interest in the topic, then you will begin to understand his thinking. Simply focus on the words and re-read challenging sentences. But also allow your heart to be involved in discerning his spirit and passion for revealing and sharing with his colleagues and the world what he has been allowed to “see” during his thirty-nine-day illumination period in 1921. His mind was a luciferous bearer of insight into the Reality behind the Universe during his creative life’s journey of 92 years (1871-1963). Of this I am convinced. So I will proceed with this introduction to a new series of blog posts under the heading “Transmutation of the Elements of Matter.”


We appear at birth into this material world of elemental forms. During the first thirty-five or forty years we grow our physical bodies, educate our minds to function intelligently in this world, and ideally mature emotionally and spiritually in order to navigate the vibrational terrain of life. . . all of it the accomplishments of the achieving centripetal flow of positive masculine energy, the magnetic force that draws form together.

If and as we transcend physical reality to embrace the world of Spirit and live our creative lives of about forty or fifty years out of a spiritual consciousness and awareness of our divine identity and authentic Self, we bring forth the unique gifts of our life’s work. In the end of our life cycle, and by way of the expenditure of energy we put forth—a responsive function of our negative feminine energy—we dismantle our physical forms and then simply disappear back from whence we appeared. As Shakespeare put it in poetic verse: “Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”

We refer to this end-phase of life as the “golden years” because the golden glow of youthful and childlike radiance returns with the centrifugal unwinding of our life energy as the light of the angel yet incarnate begins to shine through the thinning veil of the opaque heart and facial countenance.

I am reminded of two of my ageing attunement mentors. Dr. George Shears, whose countenance shown with light as his form seemingly faded thin weeks before making his transition and final transmutation back to pure spirit. It was a wonderful experience and privilege to abide in the shadow of his light during our almost daily attunement sessions while attending a three-month Art of Living class at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, where he lived out his final days of service here on Earth. Sometimes his hand rested on my chest as he fell asleep. I loved him very much, as I did his nephew, Dr. William Bahan, “Bill” as we called him, my professional mentor, whose personal field of radiance was at times a palpable hedge extending several feet around his body toward the latter days of his presence on earth, considerably dense as I approached to shake his hand on one occasion. I looked up into his welcoming and un-filtering eyes as I entered his protective hedge without resistance, as I know there was much in my personal field that yet needed purification and clarification.

The world of energy is fascinating but exacting to navigate. As the saying goes, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” The terrain of the elemental earth is alive with movement. Men are wasteful in their ignorance of this as they impose their destructive machinery tearing into the mountains for minerals and the sacred earth for fuel. There is an easier and less destructive way that remains hidden from the eyes of the foolish. I will continue exploring this alchemical way of the Transmutation of the Elements of Matter in my next few posts. I welcome any thoughts and insights you may wish to share. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.
